The campus is very large, and you are sure to get lost. There are many buildings of architectural merit. It's worth going just to see the Geisel (Dr. Seuss's real name) Library, named after him. It's very hilly and on the ocean. It's in or next to La Jolla and ought to be part of anyone's visit to La Jolla.

This is a lovely campus, covering a lot of ground. Especially nice for visitors is the art walk. You can get a map at the official entrance gate (and a parking permit).

We had just come from UCLA and looked at UCSD. What a contrast. The trees, buildings and atmosphere are really something to see.

We took public transit out to the UCSD. It is a GORGEOUS campus! It was a long trip by trolley but worth it. Saw a lot of the local terrain on the way.
